PicoCare is a laser treatment that uses very short pulses of light to target and remove pigmented or vascular lesions, such as age spots, freckles, and facial veins. It is also used for acne and acne scars, as well as skin rejuvenation.
2. How does PicoCare work?
PicoCare uses a high-powered laser to deliver extremely short pulses of energy to the targeted area. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigmented or vascular lesion, breaking it down and allowing the body to naturally remove it.
3. Is PicoCare safe?
PicoCare is considered a safe treatment when performed by a trained and qualified professional. However, as with any laser treatment, there is a small risk of side effects such as redness, swelling, and pigmentation changes.
4. How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will depend on the size, depth, and type of lesion being treated. Some patients may see improvement after one treatment, while others may require multiple treatments.
5. Is there any downtime after a PicoCare treatment?
There may be some redness and swelling after the treatment, but this typically resolves within a few hours to a few days. Patients can usually return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
6. What are the benefits of PicoCare treatment?
The benefits of PicoCare treatment include:
-Removing unwanted pigmented or vascular lesions
-Reducing the appearance of acne and acne scars
-Improving overall skin tone and texture
-Minimal downtime and discomfort
7. Who is a good candidate for PicoCare treatment?
PicoCare is a good option for people with pigmented or vascular lesions, acne, or acne scars, and those looking to improve the overall tone and texture of their skin. However, it's not suitable for all skin types and a consultation with a qualified professional is recommended before the treatment.
